A Song everyone needs to live by...
Most of these negative reviews are by people who listen to today's watered down garbage. First, let me do some corrections: TNT: - Skynyrd didn't exist in '79. That was 2 years after their plane crash. They didn't reunite until 1988 - Skynyrd has been around for over 40 YEARS, not 30. It was 30 in 1997, when they released their album...ironically called..."Thyrty: 30 year Anniversary Collection" - also the same year they released "Twenty" (which stood for the number of years since the horrific crash) lmilby, hooper10 - You state Skynyrd has never been country. "I'm A Country Boy," "Mississippi Kid," "Down South Junkin',"... Skynyrd has ALWAYS had country roots. Johnny Van Zant has said it. Gary Rossington has said it. Billy Powell said it. Even the great Ronnie Van Zant said it. AND HE FOUNDED THE BAND. CubsWin! (How ironic is it that you have a screen name of a team that hasn't won the World Series in 101 years...) Any way, you state... "Poor Ronnie is turning over in his grave listening to this awful song." Ronnie was going to quit the band in 1978 and turn the reigns over to Johnny. Ronnie was going to become a country artist and the bands manager. Do some research on the band...it may help in your arguments. Skynyrd has ALWAYS been about the common man. Listen to the first LINE OF THE SONG. That being said...people say "this isn't skynyrd. It's newer Skynyrd." Of course it is. 9 MEMBERS HAVE DIED LIFETIME IN THIS BAND!!! Ronnie Van Zant, Allen Collins, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines, Leon Wilkeson, Hughie Thomasson, Billy Powell, Ean Evans, Dean Kilpatrick. (Kilpatrick was the road manager, but he still counts). The sound is more country just because they don't flake out and go completely out of their roots to appease the media. THEY STAY TRUE. And the lyrics in this song hit home. That's why it's a MUST buy. Besides...It's Skynyrd
Not as good as classic Skynyrd (obviously, I mean, Ronnie was the best southern rock singer ever) but this is still really good
great but more like vanzant
this song is great and people say that this song sounds more country than the orignal band but that is because most of the old rock bands (70s) would be country by todays standards. This song does sound like Vanzant (the vocal duo of Johnny (lead singer Skynyrd) and Donnie Vanzant (singer of 38 special) Ronnie Vanzant is not turning in his grave he sez "Merle Haggared is the best f**kin artist ever" if merle is his idol how can he not like this song!!!!
